We elaborate the uses of Hassium and atomic properties with characteristics. Hassium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably silver-white or gray metallic with atomic number 108. Its symbol is Hs and it belongs to the group of transition metals and its usual state in nature is unknown. Hassium is located at position 108 on the periodic table.
On this page you can discover the chemical properties of hassium and information about hassium and other elements of the periodic table such as osmium, bohrium, meitnerium or scandium. You will also learn what hassium is for and you will know what its uses through its properties associated with hassium such as its atomic number or the usual state in which hassium can be found.
You can see qualities of hassium such as its melting and boiling point, its magnetic properties or what its chemical symbol is. In addition, here you will find information about its atomic properties such as the distribution of electrons in hassium atoms and other properties.
For some elements, part of this information is unknown. In these cases we show the properties attributed to them.
The transition metals, also called transition elements, is the group to which hassium belongs. In this group of chemical elements to which hassium belongs, are those located in the central part of the periodic table, specifically in block d. Among the characteristics of hassium, as well as those of the rest of transition metals, is to include in its electronic configuration the d orbital, partially full of electrons. Properties of this type of metal, among which hassium is found, are its high hardness, having high boiling and melting points and being good conductors of electricity and heat.
The state of hassium in its natural form is unknown, presumably solid. Hassium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably silver-white or gray metallic, and belongs to the group of transition metals. The atomic number for hassium is 108. The chemical symbol for hassium is Hs.
Atomic properties of hassium
The atomic mass of an element is determined by the total mass of neutrons and protons that can be found in a single atom belonging to this element. Regarding the position where to find hassium within the periodic table of elements, hassium is found in group 8 and period 7. Hassium has an atomic mass of 269 u.
The electron configuration of hassium is probably [Rn] 5f14 6d6 7s2 an assumption based on osmium. The electronic configuration of the elements determines the way in which the electrons are structured in the atoms of an element.
